‘Pose’ renewed for third season after Season 2 premiere

Trans-focused ballroom drama Pose has been picked up for a third season just days after the premiere of season 2.

Creator Ryan Murphy sees season 2 shift the focus from the 1980s to the dawn of the 1990s, where Madonna is bringing voguing into the mainstream and the ballroom scene are ready for their moment.

Transgender stars Dominique Jackson, Mj Rodriguez, Indya Moore return to the record-breaking cast, and breakout star Billy Porter is back as the witheringly witty Pray Tell. Queer icon Sandra Bernhard also joins the season 2 cast as a rebellious doctor on the front-lines of the fight against AIDS.

“Pose has elevated our culture and the TV landscape like few shows before it, and we are honored to partner with co-creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals on a third season,” FX chairman John Landgraf said in a statement.

“Our thanks to the entire creative team, including Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Alexis Martin Woodall, Sherry Marsh, Janet Mock, Our Lady J, Erica Kay, the amazing cast and crew and everyone at Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions for this incredibly entertaining, enlightening and groundbreaking series.”

Season 2 of Pose airs Sundays on Foxtel.
